Help make brighter futures for kids like Kelly.

Before coming to Mercy Home, Kelly lived in a small, rundown one-bedroom apartment with her mother. Funds were tight, and Kelly and her family didn't always have basic necessities like food or heat. The environment was far from ideal for a 12-year-old girl, and the trauma she experienced there was something no child should have to endure.

But today, Kelly has found a sense of peace and healing, thanks to the safety, stability, and nurturing environment of Mercy Home. She has discovered a new passion - gardening. This summer, she has had the opportunity to spend time in nature, something she never thought possible in her previous living situation.

Kelly's story is not just about overcoming trauma, but also about growth - much like the plants she tends to in the garden. She's learning about patience, care, and the joy of seeing the fruits of her labor. These lessons are helping her heal and build resilience.

Your generosity helps kids like Kelly overcome their trauma and discover their true potential. Thanks to caring friends like you, Kelly is healing, growing, and looking forward to a brighter future.

Since 1887, Mercy Home has been a beacon of hope for kids in crisis. We've helped tens of thousands of young people in Chicago recover from the trauma of abuse, neglect, and neighborhood violence, so they can grow and thrive. Be part of our children's success by making a generous gift today. Thank you!

Create brighter futures for Mercy Home's boys and girls.

Your support of Mercy Home is more critical than ever before.

When you make a gift to Mercy Home, you will ensure that our children's basic needs will be met. You'll also provide therapy, tutoring, and other critical support to help them overcome the trauma of their pasts and be prepared to succeed in school.

Mercy Home provides compassionate, ongoing support to at-risk youth.

Safety in the storm

So many young people face serious, sometimes life-threatening adversity. Abuse. Neglect. Insecure homes and struggling schools. Growing up surrounded by violence, poverty, and lack of opportunity, young people like these need a safe harbor.


Here’s how you can support the well-being of the children who are entrusted to our care. There are many ways to make a valuable contribution.


Make a lasting impact by sustaining our work all year. Any amount you choose supports the growth and success of at-risk youth.


Memorial gifts are a thoughtful and meaningful way to honor a loved one. Or you can make a tribute to celebrate a loved one's success. All while making a difference for young people.


Leave a legacy to Mercy Home in your will. We offer gift planning services that go beyond community care, and benefit you and your loved ones.
